12 oz bottle from Costco Bakersfield. Nose of light floral hops and malty caramel with a slight woody note. Clear orange with a small off white head. Flavor is slightly bitter with a malty backbone. Finish lightly bitter. Drinkable but nowhere near a great Pale Ale!

Pours clear copper with weak off white head. The aroma has notes of tart grapefruit and tangelo, a touch of sour citrus, some acidity and hints of maltiness. The taste is similar with some tart to sour citrus that rolls into bitterness by about midway with lingering light maltiness in the background.

bottle-pours lite copper with a fizzy white head. carmel malt dominates the nose with touches of leafy hops. a bit of oxidization as well. earthy and leafy hop flavors with some carmel malts-pretty boring and not good. i didnt realize this was made by gordon biersch-the label said some company in new york. i dunno.. anyways, not very good!

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle brewed in Utica, N.Y. with an expiration date of Apr 04, 2010. The pour is golden yellow with a decent fizzy white head and pretty good lacing. Light but noticeable floral hops are the main aroma with a dash of malts. The taste is bitterly sharp with a hopped finish.

Sampled in a 12oz bottle from Costco in Mtn View. Overall a very weak brew. Flavor is not very smooth or well crafted. Pours with a white head and color is yellow and clear. Overall decent for the price but prefer the amber and german.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2010 12 oz bottle into Grolsch lager glass. Smells like Sugar, cheap grain. Pours deep golden with a medium head and excellent lacing. Taste is just slightly piney; starts sour, ends bitter. It’s more grainy. Medium carbonation. Overall, a very grainy pale ale. I’ve had worse, but I’ve had better.
